English Sermon (12/13/20) – DNA of a Disciple – #6: Receiver to Giver (2 Cor 5:16-21)
Those who are followers of Christ are receivers of Christ’s reconciliation and are now a new creation. To reconcile means to change thoroughly and to be reconciled by Christ means to go from being in sin to being “holy and blameless and above reproach” (col 1:22). Since we have received reconciliation from God, we are now called to do the Gospel ministry – the ministry of reconciliation as ambassadors for Christ. Lost people matter to God and so those lost people must matter to us. We are called to REPRESENT Christ and to do so we must engage with the broken world, be intentional with others and ourselves to carry out the mission, and lastly be invitational by making an appeal to the lost.
